XP1 is perfect. Has adjustable flow to reduce it if it's too much flow. No disadvantage.
Depending on if you want a "high tech, high light tank" CO2 is a must. But if you want low tech, no co2, and minimal fertilization then CO2 isn't necessary. A simple DIY rig with a hagen ladder will be sufficient for CO2 in anycase. Additional CO2 can't hurt in both situation.
If you pricematch the filstar at your local petsmart with the price from bigalsonline, you can get it for about $60. Print out the website price page, and bring it in. If the manager turns you down, try again another day with another manager or another store. Always works for me on the first time though.
Welcome to APC! Good luck with the move.
